Style

Posted 03-12-2011 at 12:10 PM by alcorn

When I talk style I'm not talking clothing, although lets face facts as fly fisherman we're a trendy bunch. No the style I refer to is more a style of fishing on whole. If you watch the movie "A river runs through it" you'll see what I mean. You see how they are taught to cast then you see two lines be cast at perfect 10 oclock 2 oclock methods. I think its incredible how things have changed. No longer are the days of just fly fishing for trout but today you can read about and most of...

A Man & His Dog in Alaska;

It seems that Iíve had a dog since I was 13 years old and Iíve had a few. My first was a mixed hound cross who had little to offer as personality but to be fair when I was 13 Ė 15 years old neither did I. My Dad had passed away just after my thirteenth so I guess the dog was an attempt to fill the void. Poor fella ended up hit and killed by a car while on one of his spawning runs. I was heartbroken but did not replace him until I was 18. Thatís when...

The months since last October until today have been filled with extreme winds and some clocked to 90 mph. Even though the sun is shining bright and warm the wind is keeping me indoors. The...

Casting Session #1 - Oh man

Posted 02-28-2011 at 06:41 PM by alcorn

Well.. I'm reading the Orvis guide to better casting. My basic hope is that if I follow this guys casting lessons then I may become a better caster. I did lesson one tonight with my 9wt. I would have used the five wt or eight wt but I haven't had the 9 out all season so I decided to use it. I forgot how well it loaded. I was only supposed to focus on my grip, back cast and front cast. Well I did that for a afew minutes and then I really got going. Before I knew it I was doin all those fun things...
